The Litter Bin
I took this picture the other day there. I just could not resist it. There it was all bright red and looking so marvellous among the vegetation at the side of the coastal path. It was a litter bin to behold. A work of art in its own right.
It made me smile because of its bold lines and colour. Somebody had taken the time to design this bin, to make it a feature of the path. I also smiled because it was the first litter bin that I had ever seen with a padlock. I wondered if they were having problems with people stealing litter.
It made me sad because just out of shot there was the usual litter that had been discarded and this beautiful bin not used. It seems some people either do not see the beauty around them or they just do not care.
I share these thoughts with you.
The Litter Bin
It stood there proud and beautiful
Waiting to play its part in keeping the beauty around.
It said in bold red, use me please.
There are many things in life we have to discard
Angry, jealousy, greed and intolerance
being just a few
There are things that should be cherished.
This litter bin has a lock on it.
If you put something in here you might never get it back if you change your mind
Once you have discarded friendship
It is difficult to win back
So today tell your friends how much you care.
Have a wonderful Saturday and a great weekend.
